Poached Tuna, Part II: this is another easy-to-assemble lunch. On the bottom of the containers I put pea tendrils. Please don't hate on me for this high-falutin' ingredient -- our grocery store sells them in a convenient package! Any kind of greens will do. I was going to use arugula but was too lazy to clean it. On the tendrils, I made a pile of poached tuna and laid down a few avocado wedges. The dressing that tied it all together was lime juice, a large pinch of ground cumin, salt, sliced garlic scape, and olive oil. On the side, a rice cracker that was surely ignored in favor of a Tate's chocolate chip cookie!
